How did you get started?
started bodybuilding at 15 years old. My uncles lifted weights and I saw how it helped shape and build their physiques. Once I started and saw some changes, I was hooked. No doubt being a short guy also played a role in my initial interest in becoming more muscular.
What your diet consists of & why?
Normally I do a keto-style diet for contest prep. My off-season diet is virtually the same with added carbs, especially around my weight training. This year I am trying something a little different for contest prep as I have a trainer, Salim Satir, and I’ll be following his diet plan.
What supplements do you use?
I use the entire Advanced Genetics line of products.
- Nitric Impact (PRE-Workout Off-Season) .
- F-10 (Contest Prep.).
Example of diet
- Meal 1: 4 oz Lean Beef + 2 Whole Eggs + 1 cup Fiber 1 Cereal.
- Meal 2: 35 Grams ISO-Phase + 10 Grams nut butter + 25 Grams GLYCO-Phase+ Greens.
- Meal 3: 25 Grams ISO-Phase + 40 Grams GLYCO-Phase.
- Meal 4: 6 oz Salmon + Green Salad (extra virgin olive oil, vinegar, lemon) + 1/3 cup Rice.
- Meal 5: 35 Grams ISO-Phase + 10 Grams nut butter + 25 Grams GLYCO-Phase+ Greens.
- Meal 6: 6 oz Chicken + 40 Grams nut butter + ½ Cup Veggies + ½ cup Fiber 1 Cereal.
What does your current work-out routine look like?
What are your max lifts?
I rarely train with less than 10 reps so I have no idea.
What’s your opinion on the run of the mill “Bulk & cut” way of training?
If you mean get fat and diet hard, I think that’s pretty much considered “old school”. Most bodybuilders now try not to let their body fat get too much over 10% off-season.
Who is your favorite bodybuilder, strongman or powerlifter?
Lee Priest and Flex Lewis are awesome. We sponsor Amit Sapir who is also an amazing under 202 guy.
If you could give someone one piece of advice, what would it be?
